Nectar Magazine has gotten more submissions for “Most of Us Die” so far than we got in total for “Evidence of Home”. This issue is going to be big. Submissions are open until June.
On a personal note, this semester has been really intense. I’ve got 3 part time jobs, a volunteer job, and starting this magazine. On top of that, being a full time student and trying to work on my thesis. It’s tiring but when I accomplish a lot, it is very satisfying. I’m excited to graduate and be able to relax without feeling guilty.

It’s a huge event and here is a little taste from this year:
Currently I am working on my thesis, which will be a continuation of my “abstracted skin” work. I’m working with a 4×5 camera and printing black and white gelatin silver. Updates on that soon!
Located about 8 miles west of Amarillo right on I-40, these ten cars are a constantly changing installation since 1974. I try and photograph every time I drive through. Even if it’s only a week or two later, the cars are always completely transformed.
Visual Sketches are new pieces that I am working on or old work I’m drawn back to.
